Title: The White Princess

Book Description:
Caught between loyalties, the mother of the Tudors must choose between the red rose and the white.

Philippa Gregory, #1 New York Times best­selling author and “the queen of royal fiction” (USA Today), presents the latest Cousins’ War novel, the remarkable story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen.

When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades.

But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III—and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York.

Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

Series: Chronicles of Nick
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Overall:
This is a great paranormal young adult series. I rather liked the Dark Hunter series in the beginning but if you've gotten very far into it you'll realize Nick's life isn't trying out so well. So why not try to reset the timeline but altering what happens to the younger Nick? Nick and his friends have many adventures, thwart many evil plots all while trying to prevent Nick from becoming the evil that destroys the world, plus they have to go to high school. Nick often makes me laugh and while Nick and the writing style seems young in the beginning, I think Kenyon does a good job of aging Nick and the story as the books move on.

From Zombies to an evil coach to bullies with and evil twist and then his own horrible father; Nick never fails to rise above his destiny to be the good guy he always wanted to be.

Volumes 5 & 6 are no exception to this as Nick really starts coming into it own and dealing with who and what he is while working to make different decisions than the Nick who came before him.

Illusion #5
Description:
Be careful what you wish for…

You just might get it.

Nick Gautier is tired of his destiny. He doesn’t want to be the son of a demon who’s fated to end the world. Nor does he want to see another demon or other preternatural creature who wants to kill or enslave him. He just wants to be normal and have normal problems like everyone else.

But normality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. When he gets sucked into an alternate reality where his mother has married his mentor and his Atlantean god best friend has become a human geek, he begins to understand that no life is free of pain, and that every person has a specific place in the universe… Even the son of a hated demon.

Most of all, he sees that his powers aren’t the curse he thought they were, and that the world needs a champion, especially one its enemies can’t imagine rising up to defend the ones he should destroy.

Old enemies and new friends square off for a major battle that will either restore Nick to his real world, or end him forever.

Series: Kingdom
Author: Marie Hall

Overall:
This isn't a bad addition to the original 5 stories but just not as good as the first ones. Moon's Flower was a very entertaining story which needed to be told for the future of the series but overall I felt some of the new stories were a little flat. I do highly recommend the beginning of this series and I'm hoping the next several installments are better.

Moon's Flower, Kingdom #6
Description:
Once upon a time, long, long ago a flower fairy looked up to the sky and dared to fall in love with the Man in the Moon...

Or so goes the tale that Danika weaves for the gathered fae children. Tonight is the night to learn a hidden tale of Kingdom. A story long forgotten, remembered by few. A tale of treachery, of love, betrayal and woe... but there's more to the story than meets the eye. This isn't just a tale of Jericho and Calanthe and their doomed Shakespearean romance, for tonight the truth of one beloved Kingdom character will be revealed.
